Barbara, the Telegraph is as biased as any other media. They tend to defend government policy but not as harshly as the DM and not as reactionary as the pro-ukip Express, so just take a pinch of salt. The refugees have expectations that include safety, shelter and some kind of secure future that would ideally include going home to a better place. The places they go to are always 'second best' but the best under the circumstances. It is not that people do not want to come to France as much as when some get here they find that they are not accepted therefore want to go somewhere better. The UK has reputation for that for whatever reason, but when they get there the dream ends. Thus far Germany has been far more the migrants' preferred destination, but now it is becoming less friendly and reaching the immediate capacity which is what counts for people on the move now. The UK is simply the end of the line. After that is the Atlantic Ocean, if you see what I mean.
The few simply surveys carried out so far have shown that the USA and Germany are the two most favoured destinations. The Telegraph seems to be the UK flattering itself that it is people's first choice rather than admitting it is fifth or sixth choice at present and word about the unfriendliness is getting around. Sure, there are daily attempts to get there and a few thousand people in the camps but as a good look shows, whilst many are aiming to go to the UK specifically others have just ended up there at the end of an open line and others are wandering around unable to find a place, so stay among their own kind in Calais.
If it was as simple as people want to get to the UK exclusively then they might have substance in their story. As it is it is just press trying to deflect from other stories.
